The 2011 Mountain Time Trial is to be held on Sunday 15th May starting at 11am. Once again, the event is sponsored by Wellstream, and there will be a £1500 prize fund, with a £300 first prize. Prizes will also be awarded for various other categories including Ladies, Veterans, Juniors, Time Categories, and a timed climb on Bilsmoor. As well as being a counting event in the Tyne Tees Spoco and Lakes & Lancs Spoco, it is also the final event in the 3 event series of Mountain Time Trials which include the Teesdale and Derwentside events.
All entrants will receive an event branded thermo mug, along with some energy products courtesy of SiS, not to mention the legendary end of race buffet.
Additional sponsors are Halo Sport Management, who are providing winners jerseys, and Pro Cycle Hire of Majorca who have donated some kit as additional prizes.
Due to roadworks on Rothbury bridge, the start and finish have been moved from Belsay to Rothbury, though the course is otherwise the same as in previous years.
Entry is on a standard CTT entry form, with an entry fee of just £8 (payable to Tyneside Vagabonds CC), sent to David Robinson at Mayfield, Fernwood Road, Jesmond, Newcastle upon Tyne NE2 1TJ. Closing date is Friday 6th May.
